  1. It could have a lot to do with what you’re eating. You said you’ve had regain...have you been eating different foods than normal with the regain? Or bigger meals? I get terrible gas when I eat lettuce, and I just started eating salads again after a 2 year break from them. I take gas x when I eat a salad and it helps a lot. What types of foods are you eating? Give the gas x a try...I hope it helps you.
  2. I’m so glad to hear that you’re feeling a little better at least But it’s VERY frustrating when these things happen and it takes forever to find the cause. Praying they do soon, my friend!
  3. Omg Tracy...severe constipation can cause horrible problems. It causes a huge lack of energy, nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite, and a whole host of other problems. A simple X-ray can show severe constipation. I’m so sorry you are feeling I’ll, and I hope you can find an answer soon! ❤️
  4. You are my fact finding friend, BB!!
  5. The knees are doing much better, @Cheesehead!!! Thanks you!!
  6. I am totally blown away, my friend @cinwa! Totally amazing, I still can’t believe I’m doing stairs!!!
  7. I feel horrible that I haven’t been posting lately! I had planned on checking in last weekend, and as usual things got away from me... I had to post this from yesterday, though. I do believe it’s the farthest distance I’ve walked in one day since having my knees done...well, since prior WLS!! I still haven’t measured my driveway yet, @BurgundyBoy, so I don’t know how many “Trishes” it is, but it’s pretty amazing to me! I also climbed 3 flights of stairs at my bariatric surgeon’s office, for the first time since starting his program, and I also used the stairs at the cardiologists office yesterday morning! Not a bad NSV in Trish’s world!
  8. @DrCohbi...welcome to Thinner Times!! Congratulations on your surgery, and your decision to get healthy! If you follow your post op plan, you will be successful! And we are all here to support you Welcome to the losers bench...it’s so nice to have you here!
  9. Thank you, @tracyringo!! ❤️❤️❤️
  10. Thanks for the tips, @LeeC I will definitely give it a shot if I need extra help. I’ve actually been eating crackers with butter the last couple of days, but I have not tried the olive oil yet. I hope you are feeling well after your surgery!
  11. I’m eating solid food again, so that definitely counts as doing better in my book, @Res Ipsa Thank you!!
  12. Oh good God...3 bottles of mag citrate at once? That’s absolutely horrible...it makes me nauseous just drinking one, and the gurgling and gas are just terrible with mag for me when nothing moves after I drink it. I don’t think I could force 3 bottles down my throat at a time if you paid me a million dollars. I am apparently making progress, but not enough YET to schedule the colonoscopy. My gastro upped my daily miralax to 3 doses, but I only need to take the enema if I don’t have a BM from the Miralax alone. He thinks it will take another 2 weeks to get me to a point where the bowel prep will be effective. So I go back to see him after another X-ray and some labs in 2 weeks, then hopefully I will be good to schedule it. I am finally back to eating solid food without nausea, so far. I’m praying it stays this way. Thank you so much for all of your advice and all the info It’s so nice knowing I’m not alone in this, because it sucks. I will definitely ask questions if I have any. But for now, I hope you are feeling well and you will be going home tomorrow if your BP stabilizes!
  13. Congratulations on your revision, @GAviv!! I hope you’re still feeling well, and praying your BP has come up! Mine gets super low like yours, and I’ve stayed many an extra night in the hospital because of it. You’re going to do great!!
  14. I can totally relate to that...my hubby will look at old pics of me and look at me now, and he will say that he does not remember me being that big. But you can damn well see it in the pictures! So they are great evidence to have! Lol It is fun to feel pretty! I haven't done any flirting, as I'm happily married, but I've actually had a couple of men try and flirt with me, lmao. Being newly thin at age 52, and to have that happen, is quite an ego boost for sure! Enjoy feeling pretty and flirting, girl...you've earned it!!
  15. Cinwa, Miralax has ALWAYS worked for me, as has MoM and even stool softeners, prior to this episode. Mag citrate is "the big guns" as far as I'm concerned, and when I drank that and it didn't work, I knew I was in trouble. So for now, at least until I see the doc tomorrow, It's the Miralax twice a day, daily enemas, probiotics. I already read my xray results from today, and apparently the stool is only in the lower colon now, so the backlog appears to have moved on. So hopefully tomorrow we will be able to schedule my next colonoscopy, and find out if colon surgery is next on the menu. I will definitely let you guys know once I find out what the plan is. As for the eggs, when I'm healthy and everything is working as it should, they are fine for me. But that just happened to be the last solid meal I ate after I was completely backed up, and I honestly don't think it would have mattered what I ate that day. It would have sat there like a brick until I threw up. Thanks so much for the advice on the Metamucil I think that's the only thing I have not tried yet.
